Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: Anejom~ Dictionary (Disonari blong Anejom~)
Written By: John Lynch
Philip Tepahae
Description:

Anejom~ is the language of Aneityum, the southernmost island in Vanutatu. This dictionary, compiled by a professional Oceanic linguist and a native speaker of the language, contains almost 5,000 Anejom~ lexical items, with definitions in both English and Bislama (the national language of Vanuatu). Both English-Anejom~ and Bislama-Anejom~ finderlists are provided to make the dictionary accessible both to linguists and to ni-Vanutatu who may not speak or read English. The dictionary uses a newly devised orthography, which more accurately reflects the phonology of the lanugage than the one in current use. It is hoped that the dictionay will prove valuable to linguistics, to native speakers, and to children learning to read and write in the language.
